Summary

With a career spanning more than forty years, from the isolation of the Canadian forest to the drama of the corporate boardroom, Mike Apsey has seen first-hand the complexities of forest management. 'What's All This Got to Do with the Price of 2x4's?' is the insider's account that gives readers a new background on the competing tensions of conservation and international economics. With the perspective of someone who has served on both sides of the issue -- industry and government -- Apsey is in a unique position to advance timely recommendations for a system of forestry governance and offer a new approach to developing forest policy. Invaluable for anyone concerned about conservation and the future of the world's forests, this memoir underscores the intricacies and intertwining of forest policy, economics, and public policy.
